LONDON, Ky. (AP) — A southeastern Kentucky man charged with killing his wife says he fatally shot her because she asked him to end her suffering from breast cancer.
Ernest Chris Chumbley told WKYT-TV he fired the shots that killed 44-year-old Virginia M. Chumbley of London — and he said he would have expected her to do the same for him. He told WLEX-TV he loved his wife.
The Laurel County sheriff's office says Ernest Chumbley called about 2:30 a.m. EDT Wednesday saying he had shot his wife. Deputies found her dead in the bedroom.
The 48-year-old Chumbley was arrested on a murder charge and was being held on $200,000 bond. A jail official told The Associated Press that Chumbley was declining requests for further interviews on his lawyer's advice.
